About Us

After years of working in higher education, an educator searched for ways to inspire students while satisfying her own creative energy. She took her passion for vibrant colors, worldly design, and motivational quotes to create, by-hand, inspirational cards that were unique unto themselves.   She gave these cards to students she mentored in order to convey heart-felt messages of hope, confidence, and empowerment. As continued interest in these creations grew, Connie felt that she could truly make a difference not only to her students but also to others sharing her interests. A partnership formed among those with similar goals led to the creation of Social Allies, a philanthropy-driven business to create inspiration-filled momentum.
